Simple stories of simple people

Delightful podcasts that showcases the interviewer’s passion for travel. Every episode captures modern day migration and the stories of not so extraordinary people in our ordinary life. Payal lends a voice for these people to share their journey and stories with us. When travel becomes a norm again, I hope to visit these wonderful places. I hope to hear more diverse stories of simple ordinary people, their lives and the big changes they have made to those around them.

Follow your heart

Payal brings her love for travel and new experiences to gathering a diverse group of people...all linked together by a deep desire to follow their passions.

Really interesting stories brought to life in conversational style interviews! Look forward to more!

Variety is the spice!

I was curious about this series, where could it take me? Answer: all over! So many different personalities, with a host of inspiring stories. The conversations flow, as if you are engaging in relaxed conversation over a drink with friends. So pour yourself a cuppa (or glass!) and tune in!
